tonight, chris says, "hey, we should see that movie 'blood diamond'."
i pause and think about this, and about the fact that this is chris, the man who will not sit through ANY movie except maybe star wars or indiana jones. and that's not even a guarantee.
and then i think about the fact that this movie is about the diamond trade, which - from what i understand via grist - is corrupt and probably quite sad.
and then it makes sense.
i reply, "why, so then i won't want a DIAMOND?" i'm laughing and speaking in the tone of voice that means if i can reach him, he's going to get tickled. he wisely scoots away as he asks, "how'd you know what that movie was about?" and then, JUST IN CASE the point has not yet been driven home that he's trying to make me mad in that way that makes me laugh while simultaneously threatening to kick his ass, he says, "we really should see that movie." bah!
have i mentioned in the past two minutes how much i love that boy? :)
she's been so scarce lately. she came around last night and apparently got tiny again. this is after she was roly-poly all of a sudden the week before last. then tonight i get a call from a neighbor a half-block away, wondering if i had lost my cat. "she comes to my house at night and eats. she sure seems hungry." i walked up the street as i talked to her and the neighbor waved to me from her balcony. we talked a bit over her fence. although oreo had since scrammed, she said that maybe i should check on the street corner as she sometimes sees oreo sleeping at the entrance to the condo building's garage. at this point, i started laughing in disbelief - my cat is pretending she's a stray. getting food from random people. despite the fact she has two bowls full of food in the garage, along with probably five cat beds and a nightly ration of catnip. but she'd apparently rather go hungry / beg food off a neighbor and sleep on the street. o-kay.
so anyway, she heard me talking so started crying so i'd come get her off the cement wall and we walked home with her purring. she got wet food and catnip and got to sit on my lap while i ate dinner, with her tail in my food. she was pretty damn happy. hopefully she'll stick around.
no exercise today. i took a break, on account of the headache i had all day. i finally took an imitrex after work - the one last night didn't seem to do anything. then i came home and slept for a couple of hours.
to eat today, i had a couple of handfuls of granola for breakfast, along with a banana and chai tea. lunch was a bit of spinach-walnut-cranberry salad and a big bowl of greek yogurt with berries. my co-worker made me an iced coffee to assist with the headache. when i got home, sufferin', i had a fluffer nutter. chris had to go out to dinner for a work thing, and i declined going as i didn't want to have to pretend i was dr. stacey and listen to some speaker blabber on about stuff i don't understand. so instead, i had mac n cheese for dinner. mmm! with two slices of bread. and two tofutti pops for dessert. i'm quite unhappy with the unhealthiness of my dinner, but what can you do? i also think i may go have a mt dew right now because it sounds good and, when i have a headache, i have a hard time telling myself no about things that sound like they'd taste refreshing.
